Content Feeds: Connecting Feeds to Your Site

You can find a link in your left-hand navigation menu called Content Feeds, which is where you can integrate a variety of social networks and RSS Feeds, as well as even do a full WordPress import.

If you keep scrolling down, you'll see the following field that lets you add RSS Feeds:

Once you add one, it will let you choose between publishing the content or saving it as drafts:

By default, it will publish the content to your home page, but you can select other sections if you prefer. Note that we only pull content that is created following the addition of the feed. So you may not notice content flowing in immediately.

As you can see, you also have four extra settings to configure:

  1. Publish Posts Without Media: If ticked, you will only publish posts that are text.
  2. Add to Discovery: If ticked, all of the content from the feed will be added to your Discovery dashboard.
  3. Full Content From RSS: If ticked, then content from the feed will be imported as full posts on your site. If this is left unticked, the content from the feed will link out to the source of the content instead of creating articles on your site.
  4. Enable Direct Link Out by Default for Auto Published Video, Instagram and/or Tweets With Images: If ticked, the media content from the feed (e.g., Instagram embeds, Twitter embeds with images, videos, etc.) will link out to the original source.
  5. RSS Summaries as Subheadlines: If your RSS Feed includes summaries for posts, it will be displayed as the subheadline when ingested into your RebelMouse site.
  6. Autogenerate RebelMouse Authors From RSS Authors: This option allows you to ingest the authors your RSS Feed has for each post, as well as create a new author profile for each person in your RebelMouse account.

Publishing Content From the Feeds Dashboard

If you have selected to add your content as drafts, you have options on how to edit and/or publish them. If you go to the For Review tab at the top of the page, you will see all the drafts that have been ingested:

If you hover over any of the drafts, you will see a toolbar pop up in the top right-hand corner of the draft. From this toolbar, you have three options: Edit & Post, Post, and Remove.

Selecting Edit & Post will open the draft in Entry Editor, and then you can edit as you would any article.

Selecting Post will simply publish that article in the specified section(s).

Selecting Remove will remove the draft from the system.

Meet the Rebelmouse Platform: The Highest Performing CMS on the Web

Make sure your site is set up for success in 2022.

In the spring of 2020, Google let the world know that its Core Web Vitals would become the new benchmark for measuring a site's performance in its search results, known as the page experience update. Fast forward to more than a year later in August 2021 when, after much anticipation, Google's page experience update became official.

Since its rollout, developers have felt the impact of how their publishing platforms stack up against the new standard. Important decisions around the architecture of your site can now make or break your site's performance in the eyes of Google.

HTTP Archive, a tracking platform that crawls the web to identify trends and record historical patterns, frequently reports on how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse has consistently outperformed major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics throughout the year:

Getting superior scores on Google's performance benchmarks isn't easy, either. The Ahrefs blog analyzed Core Web Vitals data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX), which is data from actual Chrome users, to see how the web stacks up against Core Web Vitals. Their study found that only 33% of sites on the web are passing Core Web Vitals.

data from Ahrefs tracked on a line chart finds that shows only 33% of sites on the web pass Google's Core Web VitalsFrom Ahrefs.

Luckily, performing well on Core Web Vitals is possible with thoughtful, strategic changes to your site’s codebase. Here's what you need to know and how we can help.
